Ought at the VAG

Reece Terris' sprawling and long-gestating installation, Ought Apartment, is set to launch at the Vancouver Art Gallery on May 6.

Rising up the full height of the main atrium in the gallery, the project reassembles six different apartment sections dating from the 1950's to the present. Terris is seeking to reassess our relationship to architecture as well as the spaces and things that surround us everyday. The various decades represented also give contrast and insight into how these relationships change over time. 

Canadian Architect recently featured a preview of the work.

Part of the gallery's ongoing regionally-focused NEXT series, it's an ambitious and compelling project by a rising local artist.
